8.Bxf7, 9.Ng5+ seems good for white. Very common trick when there is an undefended piece (usually a bishop) on g4 "pinning" the knight. Although here black gets a big lead in development, maybe it's not so clear.... :?:

Thanks Katar. During the game I didn't see that, but I saw it when I first started analyzing it, and I don't think it's all that great. There's a game in my database that follows that line and Black wins the pawn back relatively easily with 10...d6! (As played in Fabian Nagy vs Nagy 1995) so it's just a fancy way to trade pieces and keep Black from castling. Looking at the position I think that retaining the light squared Bishop (and the Bishop pair especially, though I squandered that advantage later) is worth more than keeping the Black King in the center. But then again I'm bad at those sorts of positions and am quite likely reading it wrong. :-)


Kingsblade, it was a great game! You have nothing to be ashamed of, it was the most fun game (and hardest fought) that I've had in months, and look forward to playing you again! I think the advantage out of the opening was mine but then you managed to take it away from me in the middlegame after a few poor moves on my part, and then from listening to your thoughts you sort of started "chasing ghosts" and played more reactively (often reacting to things I wasn't even considering doing) than with a real plan. I think if you had played f5 much earlier in the game then the tables quite likely would have been in your favor as you were the only one who had an option of freeing your dark squared Bishop. (I don't think that my Queen on f3 could stop the f5 advance because of different pin moves and whatnot and you could have at least forced a pawn trade opening the f file for your rook. But I'm not sure and plan to look at that when I analyze this game)

By the way, what was that song you had playing?

Hi KingsBlade,

I wonder if Bh6 could be a good answer after Re3 in move 34. I am a bloody beginner in chess. In fact I nearly never play a game, but sometimes I like watching chessvideos...

Wow! I was actually talking out loud while watching this video. "Kingsblade take back with the rook or he'll skewer your rooks with his bishop!" Nice game and video. They're always appreciated.

also important is 33. Re4??, where white can simply respond with 34. Rxe4, and after the recapture dxc4, Qc4+! crushes black.
